about the presidential debate. for the first time mitt romney and president obama will meet face-to-face, in denver tonight. the questions are, what would you ask if had you an opportunity to pose a question to one of the candidates? what should you be watching for, both in content and in body language? who goes in with an advantage? who has a disadvantage? this morning we talked to the obama campaign deputy campaign manager, stephanie cutter is our guest, barbara come stostock wi join us as well and brett o'donnell will talk us through handicapping this debate, all happening at 7 a.m. eastern time when we kick off "starting point". >> excellent. >>> 46 minutes past the hour. must see video. we've been showing this to you all morning long. cameras mounted inside a plunging empty jetliner to capture the moment it captures to the ground. find out what was learned about seat location and your chances of survival. >> amazing. anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issue

the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin
